It's a Man's World
From A Carol's Christmas
CAROL: If youre gonna make it in this corporate rat race,
Youll have to learn the secrets of the trade.
Youll never get ahead by wearing high heels and lace.
Dont forget it was by men the rules were made.
So its she who wears the pants who makes the grade.
Its a mans world.
Thats the one thing to remember.
Youre gonna have to learn to play the game.
You hafta take those hits when they come your way.
And when you get the chance you dish 'em out the same.
So heres your chance, girl.
Just forget the word surrender
Dont be intimidated by the guys.
You gotta fight your way to the top of the hill.
Its easy if you listen to these words to the wise.
You play it twice as smart to beat the competition.
Work it twice as hard as the other guys.
Fight it twice as mean and youll fulfill your mission.
The victorys twice as sweet 'cause its men we get to beat!
Yes, its a mans world.
So forget about your gender.
Youll reach the top in style.
Yes, its a mans world,
Its a mans world,
Its a mans world
But only for a while!
